Uni Blog 2018

Hello, so this is a little glimpse into the thoughts and things around my final major project from university (over a year ago). The aim of the blog was explore the topic of atmosphere and how objects within the home can influence it. Feels like a million years ago I started this but anyway, hope you enjoy 

The Forgotten Nomads

Exploring the heritage of the nomadic culture from around the world. Originally it was going to be a topic which I just dipped a toe into, however, after some of the things I found, I imagine future design tasks revolving around this area. What really captured my imagination was this idea of a “band” (tribe/family) travelling through the unknown, either on the camel's backs or a donkey's whilst each landscape bringing its own obstacles. One of these tribes, for instance, are the Bedouin who are found in the Sahara - translated as ‘desert dwellers.’ In addition to this wondering, was the idea of how they tell stories and the original craft which occupies there time.
